Where to use it

Wedding invitations: Set the tone for spring colors with this Sweet Swirls Letterpress Invitation. The stationery is made up of 100-percent cotton that is soft and luxurious to the touch. Dusty blue and green swirls dance along the bottom of your invite and coordinate beautifully with your wording. These hues set the tone for the rest of your wedding decor.

Reception tables: Imagine a table​scape of fresh white linens and stark white plates complemented with glamorous silverware and dusty blue napkins for just the perfect splash of color. In the middle of your table, place a dramatic arrangement of white and dusty blue flowers in vases to pull the whole color scheme together.

Attire: Both your groomsmen and bridesmaids can sport this pretty pastel color. Opt for blue dresses for your girls and matching blue patent-leather shoes for the men. Not only can the bridesmaids and groomsmen wear blue, so can you! Stand out by wearing a lacy blue dress like the bride on our style board.

Flower girl: Give your adorable flower girl a basket of dusty blue petals to sprinkle down the aisle. You can even put a few blue blooms in her hair for a dainty look that fits right in with your wedding theme.

Which colors complement best

Other blues: Create a monochromatic color scheme by introducing other hues of blue. Dusty blue combined with shades like navy and royal blue can create a striking statement on your reception tables.

Bright coral, yellow or peach: Vibrant hues like coral, yellow and peach would complement the blue tones and help brighten up your color scheme for a fresh spring or summer wedding.
